Aloha e nā keiki,
DID YOU KNOW?…. I just learned why the Silverback Gorilla’s habitat is being destroyed. After watching this video by fifth graders in Canada, I was shocked!! I’m still wondering if Ivan would survive if he was allowed to return to his native habitat.
What do you think? Watch this video. Then use a signal word or phrase and share a 2-3 sentence reflection. Use key words or places mentioned in the video.
Aloha Kakahiaka e nā Keiki,
Yesterday we were privileged to an outstanding performance!! “South Pacific” It featured two of elementary students. In the reply box, make a text to text connection. That means I want you to connect the performance “South Pacific” to another text!
Remember a text could be a book, TV show, movie, newspaper article, online article, or another tool that use written or spoken language.
Write in complete sentences, and be descriptive. Include specific details from yesterday’s performance in your writing.
Good Morning e nā keiki,
We always think of Halloween as a time to dress up and get lots and lots of candy. After reading these websites, I learned thereʻs a lot more to the Halloween celebration.
Hereʻs your task:
1. Check out the websites listed below
2. Use a signal word or phrase and write a statement about something new that you learned that you never knew before about Halloween.
History of Halloween for Kids
Good Morning Dispersal Geniuses!!
Yesterday we review dispersal or how plants and animals arrived in our islands. We learned how plants, animals, insects, and bugs have changed slowly over time to adapt to the change in Hawaiiʻs environment and climate.
Once youʻre done checking out the pictures below, and youʻve reviewed your notes. In the reply box, use a SIGNAL WORD to signal new learning about what something new that youʻve observed or noticed in your notes and/or pictures.
If you can peak into the class, the signal word chart is under the whiteboard.

WE are truly blessed with talented teachers and hard working students!! This morning 4A spent the morning in Mrs. Rosehillʻs art class creating 3-dimensional clay pieces.
Before pieces could be sculpted, students researched their animal in their narrative non-fiction picture book, took notes in the FQR, and finally sketched their animal and outlined features that would help with their clay sculpting.
BUT..weʻre not done!! When theyʻre dried, Mrs. Rosehill will fire them and weʻll paint them. Then theyʻll be fired again!! Be on the lookout for our display session!!
Check out these photos!!!
